Essen 2007: Heico HS7 based on the new Volvo V70 T6

The Heico HS7, based on the new Volvo V70 T6, is fitted with electronically controlled all-wheel drive (AWD with Instant TractionTM) and six gear automatic drive with Geartronic function. With Heico SPORTIV tuning, Volvo's newly developed 3.0 liter 6-cylinder in-line turbo engine develops 243 kW (33! 0 bhp) at 5600 rpm and accelerates the station wagon to 100 km/h (62.5 mph) in just 6.2 seconds. Top speed is limited to 250 km/h (156 mph).

Extrovert exterior
Optical similarities with the Volvo S80 High Performance Concept recently unveiled at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas are intended, no question. The Heico HS7 also has a re-designed front grill, a well-defined front skirt with more conspicuous spoiler flaps, enlarged air vents and a better dimensioned charge air cooling system.

The modified rear skirt of the Heico HS7 now perfectly surrounds the four round tailpipes, giving an overall impression of a harmonious and perfectly designed tour de force from every perspec-tive. The corresponding stainless steel exhaust system starts behind the catalytic converter, improves the responsiveness of the engine and provides for a pleasingly sonorous engine sound.

Heico SPORTIV places emphasis on stylish details in the high quality interior: pedals, foot rest and door pins finished in aluminium, with the stainless steel Heico SPORTIV entry-strip logos being illuminated in an exquisite blue tone when the doors are opened.
